Mara House provided us with an excellent Guide. He took us through a number of pyramids and explained them thoroughly. The day is something my husband and I will remember forever.

Well worth taking a trip down here. We stayed in Giza and took a taxi, it's a fascinating site and the red pyramid and broken pyramid just up the road are excellent too. See more n World Travel Family

The pyramid is amazing one of the first constructed. But even more impressive are the tombs of the non-pharaohs. One of the tombs is open to explore and the graphics on the walls are amazing!

kudos to the modern Egyptians for protecting from development the desert expanse around Saqqara and the other pyramids from the first dynasties. One can still share the expanses that surround these great structures with the camels that roam about.

The first pyramid built. An interesting site with no where near the numbers of people of the Giza Pyramids.

These pyramids are older than the great pyramids, and they are a little more worn (but an extra couple hundred years will do that). The insides are beautiful here, lots of hieroglyphics and plenty of colour. There really is a lot to see at this site. But beware the extra cost, tourism has dropped at this site as it is... More
